Welcome to the Western Magic Basketball Club (WMBC).

Western Magic competes in the Basketball SA (BSA) district competition. WMBC provides basketball opportunities for males and females of all ages, to play in South Australia’s representative basketball competition, from Junior, Youth and Senior levels.

Our Program provides players of all ages a fun enjoyable and affordable place to learn how to play basketball while players are supported in reaching their playing potential.

We hope the players, parents and friends of WMBC have a meaningful and rewarding time at the Club both on and off the court.

Western Magic is run by a dedicated team of volunteers who are focussed on providing the advantages and opportunities that Magic has offered them or their children to future generations of players. We fully acknowledge that playing any sport at the club level can be a financial burden on families that may have multiple family members possibly engaged in more than one sporting or other activity. To that end we work hard to make involvement as affordable as possible.

Fees are for a full year;

  • $350 – Under 10’s (+ BSA Registration + $50 Refundable Volunteer Levy)
  • $650 – Under 12’s -U18’s (+ BSA Registration + $50 Refundable Volunteer Levy)
  • $350 – Under 21’s – Seniors (+ BSA Registration + $50 Refundable Volunteer Levy)

Club fees cover player registration with Basketball SA (the sport’s governing body), player and club insurance, training sessions (normally 2 hours per week) and other expenses involved in running the club.

Payment plans are available to spread the fees out over an extended period should this be easier to manage. EFTPOS facilities are available for your convenience.

Western Magic has a strict “no pay – no play” policy beyond a cut-off date each season to ensure that we are able to keep our fees as low as possible, with every player meeting their fair share of the expenses.
